4:00 pm
a clue what goes on down here, the only way to find out, is to see it yourselves. >> taking viewers beyond the debate. >> don't miss al jazeera america's critically acclaimed series borderland 24 hours after a ferry
4:01 pm
crash. ♪ diplomats of the united states, ukraine, met in geneva today. and they came out of those faulks with a road map. aimed at easing rising tensions in the eastern part of the country. here is secretary of state after the deal was reached. >> this day's work has produced principles. and it has produced commitments. and it has produced words on paper. and we are the first to understand and to agree. that words on paper will only mean what the actions that are taken as a result of those words produce. >> and we are hearing from president obama on this, let's go to libby casey live in the white house for more, libby? is. >> tony, we are hearing
4:02 pm
from the president at this hour, he is doing a briefing, he joined reporters just a little while ago, and was asked about ukraine. top question on many people's minds the public defender said while these are encouraging signs he says i don't think we can be sure of anything, he said there is a possibility or a prospect that diplomacy may deescalate what is happening. and he layed out the basics which we also heard from secretary kerry. russia, the u.s., also the e.u., here is how the president talks about what is happening next. >> the question now becomes will, in fact, they use the influence that they have exerted in a disruptive way, to restore some order so that ukrainians can carry out an election, move forward with the decentralization reyou remember toes that they have proposed. stabilize their economy, and start getting back on
4:03 pm
the path of growth and democracy. >> so as we look what this actually entailed, tony, we are seeing some is agreements that these armed pro russian bans will give up government buildings that they have creesed also we will see a disarmament of illegal groups. of course, if everyone sticks to the parameters of this initial agreement, there's a lot that is not talked about. there's no ease back of any kind at this point on sanctions employed by the u.s., or e.u., in fact the president said they are prepared to kick in more if this does not move on. there is not a decision made. 40,000 in number so still a ways to go. they were careful to say these are initial steps. >> still taking questions let's talk about a new headline out of eastern ukraine, where pamphlets
4:04 pm
are being posted around. >> that is evidence that these are real, that they are referring to the injuryish people. registering secretary kerry weighed in on this, here is what he had to say. >> we strongly condemned request rejected religious international remembers including antisemitism. let me say a quick word about that. just in the last couple of days, notices were sent to jews in one city, indicating that they have to identify themselves. secretary kerry said it is not only intolerable but grotesque. >> still taking questions in the white house press briefing room.
4:05 pm
let's listen in. hurting ordinary russians just for the sake of it, the strong preference would be for mr. putin to follow in on what is a glimmer of hope coming out of these geneva talks but we aren't going to count on it until we see it, in the meantime we will prepare what our other options are. with respect to the affordable scare act, my point is that we have been having a political fight about this for five years we need to move on. that's what the american people are interested in. i think that democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people like the woman i just described, who i saw in pennsylvania yesterday, were helping. because of something we did. i don't think we should
4:06 pm
apologize about it, and i don't think we should be defensive about it, i don't thinking with there's a good, strong, right story to tell. i think what the other side is is doing, and offering, would strip away protections from those families. and from hundreds of millions that already had health insurance, but never knew if the insurance company would drop them, when they actually needed it, or women who were getting charged more just because they are a woman. i am still puzzled why they made this their seoul agenda item, when it comes to politics. it's curious. but it -- what i intend to talk about, is what the american people are interested in hearing. our plans for putting people back to work. our plans for making sure our economy continues to invite, our plans as i discussed yesterday were training people for the jocks that are out there right now, and making
4:07 pm
better use of our community colleges. and linking them up with businesses. and how we will continue to bring manufacturing back the way we have over the last several years. and how we are going to put more money in the pockets of ordinary people. so they want to -- if republicans want to spend time talking about repealing a law that is working, that's their business. i think what democrats should do is not be defensive, but we need to move on and focus on the things that are important to the american people right now. >> david jackson. >> one reason republicans talk about is there are people who object to the law, say they have had problems with the law, and there are significant number of opponents of the law, i guess my question and what does it make you think a significant number of american voters will accept this law? are we destin to see red scare as a 50/50 for years to come? >> i think you are mixing up two things here. you said there are people who have seen problems with the law. that's not 50% of the american people.
4:08 pm
there may have been folk whose have been effected in ways that they weren't happy about. that is a far smaller number than the millions of people that have been signed up. that doesn't mean we shouldn't be concerned about it. that is an area, we should be open to other ways we can make it better. so that's objective facts and real problems out there. general opinions about me, or democrats or partisan generally. my view is is that the longer we see the law benefiting millions of people, the more we see
4:09 pm
accusations that the law is hurting millions of people being completely debunked as some of you in the press have done. and the average american sees it is not effecting them. in an adverse way. then it becomes less of a political football. which is where i want it to be. 24 shouldn't be a political football, this should be something that we take for granted. that in this country, we should be able to get affordable healthcare, regardless of how well think you are. now the larger issue, about whether we can move past the polarization, and sort of the bitter political debates between democrats and republicans, of which obama-care is just one small part. that's going to take more time.
4:10 pm
but it's not for lack of trying on my part. and i think that i speak for all democrats in saying we would much prefer a constructive conversation with the republicans about how do we get some stuff done. we know infrastructure will put people wac to work right now, and improve the economy. didn't used to be a partisan issue. why aren't we coming one a way to make sure that we are rebuilding our roads and our bridges. and improving our traffic control system. no reason that has to be political. there really isn't any ideological disagreement on that. and i guarantee you after this winter, if you look at the potholes that are the size of canyons all across big chunks of the united states, that people would like to see an infrastructure built. let's get it done.
4:11 pm
>> how long. >> health scare creases to become a political football? is. >> you know, -- i think it's hard to say. it's interesting i spoke at the lbj library the other day, and most of us weren't around to pay it real close attention to those debates or their pretty distant now in the past, apparently it took several years before people realized hey, medicare actually works. and it is lifting a lot of seniors out of dispair and poverty. so way have been through this cycle before. it happens each and every time we make strides in terms of strengthening our commitments to each other, and we expand some of these social insurance programs. there's a lot of fear mongering and a lot of political argument, and debate. and a lot of accusations
4:12 pm
are flung back and forth about socialized medicine, and the end of freedom, and then it turns out that it's working for a lot of folks and we still live in a free market society. constitution intact, and we move on. in the meantime let's focus on things that the american people care about. >> a couple of points here on the affordable care act. it is time to move on to other things. and then on your crane a lot of questions. the military options for ukraine. a lot to say about the situation during his annual television call in program. and the talkathon even feature as question from edward snowden, al jazeera peter sharp has more now from moscow. >> no coincidence, that
4:13 pm
as the crucial four party talks got underway, vladimir putin was stealing headlines in moscow. >> >> and one question, would putin send in the troops. >> i can remind you that russia's federation council granted the president the right to use armed forces in ukraine. i very much hope i will not have to use that right, and we will be able to solve all issues in ukraine by political and diplomatic means. >> this is an event that plays well as home. but putin also had a firm message to find countries like the united states, which will impose sanctions on russia other it's actions in ukraine. >> can a compromise be found on the ukrainian issue between the united states and russia, the
4:14 pm
compromise must be found not between third party players but between political forces within ukraine itself, this is the key point. >> so two with very different messages to take away from this telethon, president putin says he was sure that ukraine and russia can reach a mutual understanding, but warning the west he has the permission to deploy his troops if he feels the russian speaking minority is being threatened. i hope he said i don't have to use that permission. >> but if there was any caller likely to aggravate the americans it was this one. i would like to ask a question. >> former u.s. smy contractor, having his first known public conversation with vladimir putin. >> does russia intercept store or analyze in any way, the communications of millions of individuals? >> mr. snowden you are a former agent, and in the past i have something to do with intelligence.
4:15 pm
>> so we will talk between ourselves as professionals. and with the deadlock of ukraine, only getting worse, that relationship with washington is unlikely to improve. peter sharp, al jazeera, moscow. >> after the south korea ferry accident is taking a toll on the families. [crying]. >> as many as 25 people are now confirmed dead, just moments ago, president obama offered his support to the families and workers trying to find survivors bad weather is hampering efforts to find people trapped inside the sunken ship.
4:16 pm
for all the divers just getting access, let alone locating anyone inside, remains an enormous challenge. faster swirling currents poor visibility and the depth of the points has made for slow progress. something the president expressed concern about during an unannounced visit to the site. one woman tells officials they say there have been too few dives that time is running out for their children. frustration fueled by unverified reports of text messages and facebook posts coming from inside the ferry. >> concludes that the text messages have been faked they promised to
4:17 pm
track down and punish those responsibility. >> some more details have emerged on the investigation. coast guard officials saying a deviation from the government recommended rout may have contributed to the sinking also noting a sharp turn made by the vessel just before it got into trouble. they are also questioning the captain, reportedly one of the first off the ship, investigator whose want to know why passengers were told to stay onboard as water rushed and why only one of the ferries lifeboats had been deployed. back at the port, schools and parents were returning from a trip to sea themselveses the rescue effort, the huge response to a national tragedy, made up of hundreds of individual ones. al jazeera, south korea. >> and today's power politics. for both parties the organizational race for
4:18 pm
the 20 thicks seen presidential nomination is underway, on the republican side, the front runser kentucky senator rand paul. david chuter joins us with more. >> yeah, tony, fueled largely by key party support. rand paul has become the first republican to asemiable 20 with 16 organization network in all 50 states. he now has a team of 200 people with campaign experience, all across the country, it's an early yet significant advantage over other potential presidential candidates and it has a lot of establishment republicans very nervous. and so they have already started to attack paul. here is republican congressman on msnbc. >> i think it would be disastrous joe. i think it appeals to the lowest common denominator. you and i can have an honest distreatment over when we should leave, what our policy should be, but rand paul brings it to hysterical level. >> for now fall is ignoring the back and forth, and focusing
4:19 pm
instead on his impressive organization. ready for hillingry, the super pack laying the ground work for her campaign, has now hired staff in four regions across the country, the group brings significant experience in key primary states including california, iowa, and new hampshire. and 20 with 14 midterm election is democratic officials confirm that kathleen former health and human secretary is considering a senate run, there you see her and her resident ignatius last week, she was a popular two with term governor of kansas before joining the administration, and top democrats have urged her to take on kansas republican senator pat robert whose is seeking his fourth term. that match up if it happens would be personal. a few years ago, they were friends but after the problems with the obama-care roll out, roberts accused him of gross incompetent and demanded she resigned. the potential for pay back according to democrats has left him intrigued.
4:20 pm
remember north carolina senator, while the democrats 2004 vice presidential nominee had resumed his law practice, and just made a court appearance involving a family involved a medical malpractice case. >> and wisconsin republican governor scott walker famous for busting unions and surviving a recall vote a few years ago, is now underfire for playing this song this week in re-election rallies. >> ♪ but that ain't america, for you and me ♪ ♪ something to see baby ain't that america ♪. >> the song, is by john cougar mellen camp a liberal democrat, and he has told a conservative walker to find music for his rallies from somebody else.
4:21 pm
tony, ain't that america. >> all right, appreciate it. thank you, coming up on al jazeera america, he has work there had for just 15 months. but yahoo's departing second in command is getting wait for it, $58 million to leave. that's all i am saying about it.
4:22 pm
4:23 pm
i don't know, things turned out. general remember trick, morgan stanley, and pepsi coe, those stocks moved higher after first quarter earnings report, the dough fell 16 points by the end of trading. has changed the policy. consumers that download coupons join the social
4:24 pm
media communities or even buy it's products forfeit their right to sue. he is by no means struggling a new s.e.c. filing says enrique received a $58 million severance, it is one of the biggest golden parachutes in history.
4:25 pm
>> as part of his employment package. however, when he joined yahoo, it is only worth $17 million. since the time that he joined yahoo, the stock price has climbed 160%. >> i see. >> and that is what with is is really driving the big parachute that we are seeing today. you are seeing that executives are being compensated more and more, his annual salary is only again $600,000. but by restricted shares by stock options and that's what is driving the big pay out. >> yeah, that won't bring much comfort to the folks on main streak. are you hearing that this kind of agreement this kind of a pay out, is because these corporations need top talent? that's the argument we have heard in the past that's for sure. >> yeah, the good news here, is thaw yo are actually finding that corporate severance packages are actually flat lining.
4:26 pm
still a high number, but it stays about that level since 2011, during the recession, there was all this upset over a.i.g., so new rules are helping keep those corporate payouts down. twin, when you have a stock market hitting a high, you will see share creases increasing. >> i am going to push back on that last note here. 50 years ago, the ratio to average salaries was what? 24-1, now it is 204 to one. how would you describe that spread. 24-1, in 50 years? >> well, here is the point. you cannot work your way to the top, again, these big salaries these big earnings are being driven by stock prices. so you know, the average person is basically seeing stagnation since
4:27 pm
the recession. but you are seeing -- what you found is that the top 20% of households have accounted for 80% of the increase in income that we have seen. so you are seeing this big divide in income and i quality. not driven by wages but capital gains. >> thank you for having me. >> come back soon. her would be and other openuates now claiming more lives than violent crime, what is behind the surge, and is what with is being done to stop it. and after initial reports that most of the nigeria girls abducted from a skill were found, confusion today that that may not be the case.
4:28 pm
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
americas top law enforcement officials say that heroine are killing more people than violent crime and car crashes. a first of it's time summit, they gathered to talk about the wide spread abuse, and the he that will consequences. deaths from heroine otherdose jumps 45%, since 2011. the drug enforcement agency has opened 4500 her win remitted investigations. here and you are following all of the numbers, and the personal stories. that's right. her win uses to be popular, but now attorney general says that the her would be threat is again sneaking up on it. that increases their chances of overdosing. >> it is the same passion that convinced will to try her win.
4:31 pm
he was found debt from her would be overdose. >> these are the words of a mother that lost his son to her would be overdose. but the drug that is known as black tar, is taking lives in communities across the u.s. this is a national issue, this is a problem national in scope. >> the most recent on wednesday, were political found 24 pounds of her win with hidden in a kitchen cabinet. her win with is now the second greatest in u.s. after methamphetamine. and it is getting easier to find in almost every region. flowing in from mexico and south america. it is the most available in the northeast, and finding new markets in the midwest.
4:32 pm
there has to be a law enforcement response to this, we also have to make sure we think of this as a public health issue as well, and bring to bear all the forces of government in educating, preventing, treating, and then holding accountable. the dea says many are starting at a younger age. around 25 1/2, and now it's 22. tony 22 states have take taken. inaloxin. >> all right. i don't want to dive into this deeper, thank you.
4:33 pm
joining me to discuss this, he is the founder of rebound brooklyn. that is a treatment center. prescription opiate overdose deaths one of the most urgent and complex challenges facing public safety professionals in the country. any hype to that statement, or does he have it calibrated just right? he has it just right. if there are more overdoses than car accidents, they have experienced the death of someone they have known. if you put it in context of how common it is becoming he is not really overstating the problem at all. what's being done to shut these down? is. >> unfortunately, there's not enough being done. it starts with medical schools. the education for doctors is very minimal.
4:34 pm
they don't screen for addictions. they don't necessarily know what to look for, and so it does set people up for accessing these drugs inappropriately, and abusing them. >> it is interesting we have heard in anecdotally and seen some evidence there's been an effort to crack down on the pill mills but hasn't that led to more addicts turning to the cheaper more widely available her win, and what's being done about that. >> if it takes going to the dealer, eric holder said, the lock zone would be widely spread. it doesn't make any sense to not have that as a safety precaution, it is also interesting that our drug policy in america, is still done by the
4:35 pm
criminal justice department, he is an attorney, he is not a doctor. he is not a social worker. he is giving this policy which a harm reduction policy, that has been popular, but not in the united states. our method has always been incarceration, and this is where it has gotten us, so it probably is time for harm reduction. >> wait a minute, here, we have this other argument, that says the widespread news, takes away the fear of death, from addicts, and will actually cause more usage. >> that's utter nonsenses that's like saying oh, don't get a fire extinguisher, because you will probably cause a kitchen fire. there is no scholarly research to support that.
4:36 pm
preventive measures are what are needed. we have not tried that, treatment works it is possible, addiction is a health issue, we don't encourse rate diabetics for eating candy, and we shouldn't incarcerate addicting for using her win. the combination we can save a lot of lives engage these people, and help them have healthy lives helping them and their families. >> take a moment here, describe for everyone watching just how bad this abuse is this cycle of using these opiates how like consuming it can become. and how hard it is to
4:37 pm
walk away and simply quit. >> it is impossible. there is no way people can just stop. once they are addicting there is no way to stop without help. there are a lot of people that say you can white knuckle it, or go to 12 step meeting the truth is all of the evidence suggests that it is a medical issue, which is one thing we are very big advocates of. we have a physician on staff. medication assisted recovery is valid. people cannot self will this. >> thank you so much. >> he is the founder of rebound brooklyn as you just mentioned that is a treatment center is in new york city. well, there is confusion over what happened to 129 nigerian girls kidnapped on tuesday. jedd we told you the military had freed most of them, and captured one of the kidnappers.
4:38 pm
the principal of the school nor the parents say they don't know where the girls are. >> the confusion about the whereabouts of the kidnapped girls and this stemmed from the fact that the military authorities here in the capitol have not released any information or details to the public or to the media about how the rescue p oration in which they claim they freed 100 of the girls undertaken. we are getting information from news agencies that the parents and families of these girls still claim some of them are missing. one parent said at least 100 were still missing. the state government in the area said only 14 of the girls managed to escape. and on top of that, it is impossible to independently verify what the security is saying. on the other hand, the government is standing behind the military, that the girls have been rescued the minister of planning gave an interview to al jazeera, in which he reconfirmed
4:39 pm
the rescue operation took place, and that was an on going operation to try to relieve eight girl whose are still held captive. again, nobody has claimed responsibility. for this attack, but it looks like the work of the group that has been behind so many attacks on schools. and who want strict form of islamic law. locked in a battle for independence for the past 40 years. more than 800 million voters will cast their ballots during india's five week general election. that has killed more than 100 people is a new strain. and did not come from central africa. 135 deaths in ginny, and liberia have been blamed there is no known cure,
